This tea was a complete surprise to me. I ordered it along with a pu-erh to try on a whim. (I had had a terrible experience with another pu-erh.) Yep, two teas at once.
I’d estimate that the steep time was about 3 minutes 30 seconds… about as long as it took me to pay, collect my bags (yes, plural) and walk around the block to my car.
The tea smelled amazingly yummy. I didn’t get to smell the dry tea and didn’t think to ask. I was so in awe of this new tea house. (New to me, that is.) There was absolutely no bitterness to the tea. It had a very full taste to it. Yes, it did have some floral tones to it, but it did not overtake the strong oolong base.
